I'm not aware of running any particular tools, Amazon Cloud Player, Windows Explorer, Drupal, Firefox, Outlook, iTunes, stuff like that. I'm a blogger. Not sure what "some tool" refers to. I don't use shareware very much. That explanation does sound logical--is there a way to fix it?
I have an unusual issue--the blue Malware icon is appearing superimposed on many (not all) of my other desktop icons in Windows 7. It doesn't seem to be interfering with the operation of the programs, but what's going on and how do I get rid of it? I ran Malware and Norton and no issues were found.
